About

A decorative burst of colorful depicting the Rabbit and Weim from Gillie and Marc's iconic figures of the Dog/Bunny Human Hybrid, which has picked up much esteem across the globe. Here we find these characters riding together on a carousel filled with color and movement. This piece is an acrylic on canvas and is signed by the artists in the middle right. Art measures 47.25 x 47.25 in ‘The world depends on contemporary artists to challenge life as we know it. We, the contemporary artist pull apart the world, so it can be put back together as something different.’ As husband and wife, Gillie and Marc are Australian contemporary artists who collaborate to create art as one, applying the iconic imagery of the dog/human hybrid to celebrate the powerful spiritual relationship that exists between man and animal. Gillie and Marc reference their own remarkable love story in their works, perpetuating a pursuit of happiness and encouraging us to challenge the status quo and the perceived safety of societal convention. Gillie and Marc’s unparalleled love is the cornerstone of what they are and of what they create. Gillie and Marc first met in Hong Kong. She was a nurse from England and he was a boy from the ‘burbs’ of Melbourne. Instantly they realized they’d found their soulmate, someone to start a journey encompassing their mutual love for art and adventure. Seven days later they were married in the foothills of Mount Everest. They not only share an unsurpassed dedication to their art but also love for their two children, whom Gillie describes as their ‘best friends’ — along with their fur baby Indie, of course. With a 20 year history of collaboration, Gillie and Marc’s works (paintings and sculptures) have received acclaim worldwide and are held in collections both nationally and internationally. 'We are two people working as one, with a single vision — something no one else is doing in art’. Initially, Gillie and Marc painted and designed, but have now become very interested in sculpture, creating commissioned works for venues such as: Australia Zoo; Sydney Children’s Hospital; Australian Red Cross Blood Service; Hilton Hotel Singapore; McDonald’s Corporate Headquarters in Singapore; and the Ying Ren Four Seasons Hotel in Beijing. The artists produce sculptures in a variety of mediums including bronze, brass, steel, wood, fibreglass and polyresin. Awards and accolades are numerous for the Schattners. In 2006 they were Archibald Prize finalists. The painting 'He’ll never be famous but he doesn’t give a damn, he’s a musician,' earned them first prize at the 2009 Chianciano Biennale in Tuscany, Italy. Their life-like fibreglass sculptural piece, Bondi Coffee Dog, appeared in the Florence Biennale in the same year. Stretching controversy further is their work, If Jesus was alive today he would be a skateboarder, which featured in the inaugural 2009 Blake Prize Director’s Cut, an online exhibition. Gillie and Marc has also featured work in the 2012, 2015 and 2016 Sculptures by the Sea at Bondi Beach where they won the People’s Choice and Kids Choice Awards in 2016, for Shandu, Buried Rhino. With over 20 years of collaboration, Gillie and Marc’s works have received acclaim worldwide and are held in collections both nationally and internationally. PROVENANCE: Lilac Gallery Collection. This original artwork includes a Certificate of Authenticity issued by the Gallery. The piece is signed by the artists.
